This is what I'm hearing from around the White Mountain area in basketball.

ShowLow - Can they survive coaching change and loss of 6' 9" big man.
Blue Ridge - Will they have a melt down again. Lots of talent.
Round Valley - Good coach. Things can only get better.
St. Johns - Big loss with graduation. Becoming more and more a wrestling town
Winslow - Always tough. Should be stacked this year with talent.
Snowflake - Could be the team to beat. And we're not just talking about the WM's
Holbrook - Great coach and always makes a good team. Lack of size will hurt them again.
Alchesay - Kind of like Holbrook. Kids come out of nowhere. Win almost all home games.

Don't know too much about the Rez this year. Chinle and Window Rock will be there as usual.

Chinle came to SF last night for a scrimmage. SF has many key players still playing football, but the kids that were out for SF looked pretty solid against the Chinle team. Chinle has a ways to go if they are going to compete this year.

SF Lobos looked pretty solid last night half of the team only having one day of practice to get ready for St. Johns. Travis Flake, Porter Black, Eldon McCray, Kurt Wood, and Jake Lyman were all playing football last Saturday Night. This will be a fun bball team to watch this year. Maybe they'll even find a way to overcome the private school scourge that is ruining fair competition in the smaller school divisions.

Let's take an early poke at what the Top 16 teams might look like at the end of the regular season. Yes, I know, basketball seeds 24 teams for the playoffs ... but I'm not going that deep -- yet.

Team (Record, so far) -- Why
1. Valley Christian (4-1) -- Defending champion lost top 4 scorers from last year but off to good start.
2. Show Low (2-1) -- Returns 4 of 6 top scorers from last year's semifinal team.
3. Yuma Catholic (3-0) -- Strong start despite losing top 4 scorers from last year's semifinal team.
4. Tuba City (1-0) -- Three of top five scorers return from quarterfinal team.
5. Snowflake (4-0) -- Strong start despite four of top six scorers gone after second-round loss.
6. Fountain Hills (5-0) -- Strong start with 5 of 7 returning from 18th seed in last year's playoffs.
7. Kingman Academy (2-1) -- Top 2 scorers gone after losing to Show Low in 2nd round last year.
8. Blue Ridge (4-1) -- Good start from team that lost to Kingman Academ in first round last year.
9. Bisbee (4-0) -- Four of top five scorers return after second-round loss to Yuma Catholic.
10. Alchesay (3-0) -- Fast start after losing to top-seeded Chinle in second round last year.
11. Cortez (1-2) -- Big drop for state finalist, but lost top 3 scorers from last year.
12. Combs (2-3) -- Returns 7 of top 9 scorers from quarterfinalist team.
13. Chinle (2-3) -- Slow start for No. 1 seed that bowed out in quarterfinals last year.
14. Scottsdale Christian (2-3) -- Returns 8 of 9 starters from seventh-seeded team of last year.
15. Northland Prep (4-0) -- Don't know much about them, but off to great start
16. Chandler Prep (4-0) -- Also off to great start, but know little about them.

Upon further review ... You might be right about Show Low. Although the Cougars return 4 of their top 6 scorers from last year's state semifinalist team, the two who graduated were 6-9 and 6-6 and were the team's leading rebounders. So #2 probably is way too high. But ... Just learned Show Low's new coach is Matt Thacker, who was a successful former coach at Wickenburg High. In fact, Wickenburg's current coach played for Thacker the year the Wranglers played in the state semifinals.

Well then, the Wickenburg coach changes the whole thing. You should put them at number 1

Haha. Not sure who returns for Show Low other than Potter and Tate. Not 4 of 6 guys for sure. Curran Nicks moved to New Mexico. Everyone else were JV guys.

So if the new SL coach was once a coach at Wick, and the new guy posting about SL uses oldwrangler as his handle on the smack board... hmmmmm?

Snowflake so far proving they are on top of the eastern conference and may be the team to beat in the whole III Division.
